Case Management

SGH Psychiatric Case Management Service

Case Management - What is it for

Case Management involves a dynamic collaboration between the case manager, the patient, and the patient’s support network, focused on providing patient-centered care while offering support and empowering patients and their loved ones during the recovery process. 

It includes the following aspects:
  1. Conducting comprehensive assessments to holistically identify the various needs of the patient and their loved ones;
  2. Creating and developing care plans with the patient and their loved ones, tailored to their needs and preferences; 
  3. Monitoring and reviewing the patient’s progress and recovery goals; and
  4. Coordinating a range of relevant services to address the patient’s specific needs throughout different stages of recovery.

​Managing case management involves working closely along side a case manager who optimises the patient's recovery journey by:

  • Enhancing the patient's understanding of their condition, treatments, and coping strategies through psychoeducation and useful resources (e.g. signs and symptoms, managing side effects, etc.);
  • Closely engaging with the multi-disciplinary team, including psychiatrists, nurses, psychologists, therapists, dieticians, and medical social workers, to advocate for the patient and promptly address their concerns;
  • Identifying and facilitating connections between patients and suitable hospital and community-based services, ensuring personalised care and seamless transitions; and
  • Offering emotional and psychological support to both patients and their caregivers.
